As the leading showcase of “tomorrow’s music, arts and ideas” in the Baltic-Nordic region since 2009, TMW aims to spot and nurture musical talent in both its home region and across European markets. Mindful of the Covid-19 restrictions, the festival this year focuses more on the Estonian and the Baltic-Nordic talent, while artists from other countries will be included depending on the situation in the given period.
The main dates of TMW2021:
Music festival: Thu, 6 May – Sat, 8 May
Conference: Fri, 7 May – Sat, 8 May
The 3-day live music festival presents around 150 artists of various genres and origins to an audience of 15,000 people and to 1,000 music industry experts. This year’s line-up will be announced gradually from February 2021. The conference offers a 2-day program of inspirational lectures and strategic discussions, while also connecting artists with the industry experts via dedicated mentoring sessions and one-on-one meetings, all aimed at taking their careers to the next level.
TMW has been praised as one of the best winter festivals of the world by The Guardian and The Observer, as one of the most exciting cultural events in the world by The New York Times, and as a tireless promoter of adventurous arts in publications ranging from The Quietus to Forbes. The last edition of the festival which took place in August 2020 has been recognized as one of the first festivals in the world that was able to postpone the event in a timely manner and to carry out the festival, with enhanced attention to health & safety measures and crisis management.
